I can give you a fix, but I can't tell you why it works.  Go into your
sec.dat file and edit the VE entries so they look like this:

MR:         MR,NB,NS,PEI,VE1,VE9,VY2;  VE
PQ:         PQ,QC,QU,VE2;      VE
ON:         ON,VE3;            VE
MB:         MB,MAN,VE4;        VE
SK:         SA,SK,VE5;         VE
AB:         ALT,ALB,AB,VE6;    VE
BC:         BC,VE7;            VE
YT:         YT,YU,NW,VE8,VY1;  VE

The trick here is to use only two-letter titles in the left column.  I
renamed MAR to MR (don't use MA, that's Massachusetts).  The prefixes
in the center area up to the semicolon are all the variations CT will
accept for that province, and VE is the country credit.

Like I said, I haven't heard an explanation, but it works.
